Brendan Greene is the man who involuntarily started the Battle Royale fever two years ago with the release of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, better known as simply PUBG. The core gameplay appealed greatly to the desires of the gaming community, and two years after, we have plenty of developers trying to find their way into the profitable niche.
It turns out that Brendan Greene himself is rather tired of what he created. First of all, he’s now working on new types of games whereas PUBG is being further developed and supported by Bluehole’s dedicated team at PUBG Corp. Greene didn’t reveal any specific details regarding his new job, but it definitely has no relations to PUBG 2 or anything like that. Moreover, the famous game designer seems to have abandoned the very idea of Battle Royale. In an interview to Gamesindustry.biz, Greene reiterated his plans to move away from the genre he – mostly solely – defined throughout the years. He’s finally done with the concept, and the next step for him is to experiment on new ideas to make them playable and enjoyable.
That’s it. Brendan Green is no longer pushing ideas for PUBG as he intends to create something completely different, although this is likely to turn into another online experience. Interestingly, the concept of killing other players might not be involved here, as Greene believes there’re enough games with that premise.
